GIRLS ON BUICKS

Looks to me like it might be a 1957 Buick with those three chrome hash bars before the rear wheel.

Maybe a 2 door with the rear view mirror caught in the far left.

 Looks like a '57 to me as well. The colour, I think it was called "Garnet Red", but it is very copper looking, and the painted strip in the body side moulding tell me its' a '57. Folks with more knowledge about '57's might be able verify my info.

Yes, the car in post 2382 is a beautiful 1957 Buick Roadmaster 2 door hardtop. I believe the color is called Bittersweet, a early '57 color.  It is owned by a member of our BCA Chapter, "Buick Club of the Redwoods". The young lady is one of the owners granddaughters. The picture was taken at the annual Peggy Sue Car Show cruise. The grandkids get a kick out of riding in grandpa's car during the cruises.

Four digit license plate??  

 

A friend and former BCA member also collects license plates. He has part of his collection on display in a recently built garage. We were over there last year and he went over the collection and the evolution of Manitoba license plates. The plates grew in size as the number of characters increased. It was neat to see.

The trousers, the car and the hair all say early '40s, but the skirts say 1965.  What's going on here?

Keep your clothes long enough and they'll come back in style.  Hair and cars, not so much....

I'm assuming cheer leaders.  If the photo was 1965 era I bet the white wall would be...all white.

Can anybody read the brand name on the carton, whatever he is drinking? maybe we can come up with a closer date.

I'm guessing you don't dress for the weather. One girl has on a bare midriff top and the girl sitting next to her has on a sweater. The guy has on the high waisted, double pleated pants.  Gotta be from the 40's.

Villa Riviera.  It's now owned by an ROA member who restored it to its original red.  It was painted white for a movie.

I hear ya! I even went and washed all of my shorts a week or 2 ago so they wouldn't smell like musty closet in the hopes for some warmer weather, but I haven't seen it yet! April 6th and it was 24* this morning!

Opened the drapes 8:30 this morning to find this and only 33 degrees:

By noon it's 42 and all the snow is gone!

Still too cold for Girls on my Buick yet.
